About the Producer

Tasca D'Almerita has a rich history dating back to 1830 on the Regaleali Estate, which has become the symbol of wine-making excellence in Sicily: 200 years of history, all with “slow maturation.” With a focus on traditional values and traditions, the winery has expanded over time to cover 550 hectares. Five different estates scattered throughout Sicily were subsequently added. These estates include the Tascante estate on the slopes of Mount Etna, the Capofaro Estate on the hills of the Aeolian island of Salina, the Sallier de La Tour estate in Camporeale, and the Whitaker Estate on the Phoenician island of Mozia.

The Tasca family has always been dedicated to wine production, and they view it not only as a business success but as an ethical and environmentally sustainable pursuit. Their goal is to produce wine with the lowest possible environmental impact and preserve each ecosystem for future generations. The production of wine takes place on the different estates throughout Sicily, where vineyards are dedicated to producing Malvasia, Nerello Mascalese, Syrah, Grillo, Chardonnay, and Cabernet di Sicilia. Grillo has received particular recognition as one of the most outstanding wine varieties in the world, earning the prestigious 'Cantina dell'anno 2012' award from Gambero Rosso's 'Vini d'Italia' guide. The winery's constant attention to preserving the environment and its millenary traditions has led to its continued success and expansion.


San Lucio is the first vineyard on Regaleali Estate where Rosso del Conte was created. It spans 7 hectares, with 5.5 hectares planted in 1959 with Perricone and Nero d'Avola and 1.5 hectares in 1965 with Nero d'Avola only. The vineyard is at 480 meters above sea level, with a south-southeast exposure, and has yellowish brown, loamy-sandy soil with a pH of 8.5. The vines are cultivated as bushes, with a planting density of 4,400 plants per hectare, and short pruning is adopted for red varieties. Rosso del Conte is faithful to its origin, expressing the high hills of Sicily with a balanced ripening of red medium-late grapes. It has a unique identity despite different stylistic variations in aging techniques.


Traditional red wine fermentation, lasting approximately 20 days, starting at a temperature of 20°C and ending at 28°C.


Full malolactic fermentation, then ageing for 18 months in all new 225 litres French oak barrels (Allier e Tronçais).

Tasting Notes

Ruby red in the glass, Tasca d'Almerita Rosso del Conte is immediately intriguing on the nose, powerful and deep in its tones which generously unfold to reveal notes of cherries, jam, dried fruit, creamy hints of black pepper and rose spices, clove, sweet liquorice and rhubarb. On the palate it is creamy and absolutely balanced. Its intrinsic pleasantness is progressively enhanced by fresh and very fine tannins, with a long finish that punctuates both the fruity and spicy notes, in a harmonious whole.
